My grandmother used to say to me "Keep Looking Up!"
She had such wisdom. She always kept me focused on the things above!
So, why does this seem so hard? It feels like it is way easier to focus on the junk rather than the beauty. Why is this?
I continually remind myself:
Girl, stop looking down!
I hear you over there sabotaging yourself!
The words and thoughts you are saying are killing your fly!
"I'm not good enough."
"I'm not smart enough."
"I feel alone."
What would it feel like to speak and think words that are
not keeping you down, but raising you up?
"I can do hard things!"
"I was made for this!"
"I feel strong and focused!"
Take captive your thoughts and words.
Speak life even if you don't yet believe it.
Today- are you looking up?
Smiling at you from behind my screen,
